Lenovo’s Special Edition ThinkPad Is Coming
Lenovo PC International has some exciting plans for the computers of the future. In fact, the Chinese multinational technology company revealed winning goals and ideas on Transform 2017 event earlier this year, somewhere in June. And this plan includes the renovation of its popular ThinkPad laptop, which is expected to have some serious transformations soon.
Lenovo, A Great Computer Maker
Lenovo is a well-known Chinese multinational technology firm with headquarters in different places – Beijing, China and Morrisville, North Carolina. It designs, develops, manufactures and sells PC, tablet, smartphones, servers, electronic storage devices, software for virus removal, smart televisions, and other technology accessories.
Since 2013, Lenovo Group Ltd. or Lenovo PC International is considered as the world’s largest personal computer vendor based on total unit sales. It markets the ThinkPad family of laptops, IdeaPad, as well as notebooks of Yoga laptops. The unit sales also included the Lenovo’s IdeaCentre and ThinkCentre lines of desktops.
A New Lenovo ThinkPad Is On Its Way
It has been 25 years since Lenovo launched its first ThinkPad 700C business laptop. It was a little large and underpowered compared to the laptops that are existing today. However, back then, it was one of the most popular machines that helped leaders in the age of the laptop market.
In the official blog post of the company, Lenovo chief design officer David Hill writes “At this point, it seems like the cat’s out of the bag.” It’s already confirmed that Lenovo will be making a special edition of the ThinkPad Laptop as part of its 25th-anniversary celebration. “It’s aimed at enthusiasts and super fans that were kind enough to share their thoughts about what the laptop might be,” Hill added.
Possible Features Of The New Lenovo ThinkPad
According to a news site, the Lenovo ThinkPad will sport exciting features more than its original version. These include stylus and voice assistant supports, which are already available on Microsoft Windows laptops. Recently, Qualcomm announced that the company is partnering with Microsoft to build laptops that will be powered by the same ARM-based platform located inside high-end smartphones. Therefore, the upcoming ThinkPad from Lenovo is also possible to be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 SoC with LTE support.
Another interesting feature of the new generation Lenovo ThinkPad is its flexible display, as well as its really advanced materials. As of now, the availability and specs of the new special edition ThinkPad are not yet officially exposed. However, Hill claims that “It has a wonderful black rubberized coating, three TrackPoint caps, and a keyboard to die for.” Probably, it will arrive by the end of this year with a price that is lower than $5,000.
